Moroccan Nights Golden Lanterns (Sneak Peek)

450pxl Moroccan Nights - Golden Lanterns

Here is the third design I created featuring the sneak peek Moroccan Nights stamp set.  Woohoo!  After finishing the Gift Bag Topper and Medallion I thought “well heck, I’ve created two projects I might as well make a third”.  Lol!  I was looking at the remaining stamps and saw the three lanterns and my A-ha moment happened.  I remembered a card layout that we made in April’s class.  Click here if you’d like to check it out.  The tri-panel layout works wonderfully with the three different lanterns.  I really love how the gold and white play off each other as well as the clean simplicity.  Woohoo!

BASE:  The base starts with Whisper White embossed with the Boho Chic embossing folder.  I toiled with which folder to use because I wanted to keep the moroccan “feel” and not look too modern.  Then I added three 1/8″ strips of Gold Foil to tie the three images together.  Sweet!

FOCAL IMAGES:  I imagined this in gold so I stamped the trio of images onto Whisper White and heat embossed in (of course) gold, then layered onto Gold Foil.  (Hello!!!  Lol!)  When embossing the lanterns I left off the “chains”.  (Hang on, you’ll see why in just moment.)  Next I added several strands of Gold Metallic Thread twisted together by poking a hole in the top of the lantern, then threaded it through and taping both ends to the back.

FINISHING TOUCHES:  To add the all important height and dimension the trio of panels are popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I topped each lantern with mini-pearls.  They add a nice subtle pearly shine and tie them together.  [Eek!  Happy chair dance ensued.]

I hope you enjoy this clean and simple layout as much as I do.  Thank you for popping by today.  Have a great Friday and weekend.
